Hormesis Produces Benefits via Altered Mitochondrial Activity
Small, short doses of damaging cellular stress, such as that achieved through the application of heat, toxins, lack of nutrients, or raised levels of oxidative molecules, produce a net benefit to cell and tissue function.

Hormetic behaviors are the basis for many of the benefits of exercise, calorie restriction, and other related interventions shown to slow aging to some degree in animal studies. In the research noted here, scientists report on an investi...

Lamellar keratoplasty techniques
Nadisha P Singh, Dalia G Said, Harminder Singh DuaIndian Journal of Ophthalmology 2018 66(9):1239-1250 Lamellar keratoplasty (LK) has revolutionized corneal graft surgery in several ways. Deep anterior LK (DALK) has eliminated risk of failure due to endothelial rejection. Endothelial keratoplasty (EK) has almost eliminated induced astigmatism and the “weak” graft–host junction as seen with penetrating keratoplasty (PK) and also reduced the risk of endothelial rejection. LK provided new insights into posterior corneal anatomy that led to better understanding and performance of DALK an...
